stars wrapped in skin

Today is the Feast of Candlemas,
which echoes themes found in many traditions around this time –
new life, the first budding of plants, the return of the sun –
light and warmth at the halfway point between the winter and the spring solstices.

We need constant reminders of the presence of light.

We are stars wrapped in skin,

The light you are seeking has always been within.

Sunday quote

 

This morning,  thousands rose early to catch the birdsong at dawn in an annual celebration entitled “Dawn Chorus Day” which went out live on radio from locations all over the world

A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer,

it sings because it has a song.

Maya Angelou
